Are you doing the repositioning cruise? transatlantic if so weather in caribbean Hot. Hot and last year ok on all the 6 sea days until we reach the azores, then you could see the weather change and we did have some choppy days at sea,but was quite mild in maderia.
Normally April is brilliant for weather and all should be good May starts getting lumpier and it will be hot.....Nei.
Cheers Neil happy new year.
Wimpy English tourist in St Lucia and Tobago in April, found it could be delightfully hot during the day, cooler and pleasant overnight, comfortable for sleeping. April on Grand Bahama (sometimes farthest northern point for "caribbean" cruising), days warm to hot, some evenings surprisingly cool, something lightweight but warm and snuggly much appreciated some nights! Also, make sure you have good sun protection!
One bad thing about April - it can be USA's Spring Break -peaceful beach resort in Tobago was infested with Spring Break brats for a week, drunk until all hours, screaming, fighting etc. Very intrusive - only about 15 of them in total, but enough noise and disruption for hundreds. Beware - some of them cruise too - although Spring Breakers in Grand Bahama last year were much better behaved ...
